It's this two-legged "bunny cat's" birthday, and our hearts are full
In today’s moment of “Awwww”, we’re celebrating the birthday of the most adorable two-legged kitty of all time. Roux (whose full name is actually Lil’ Bunny Sue Roux Hendrickson Dean Akey) is the adopted “bunny cat” of Jackie Dean Akey of Louisiana. Last year, Jackie found out that the sprightly little cat, who was born without her front legs, had been given up to a shelter and decided to open her home and her heart to this feline-in-need. Now the two live a lovely life in New Orleans along with Akey’s other pet, an actual bunny named Kangaroo (they really should also get a kangaroo, while they’re at it.)
These days, Lil Roux the bunny cat not only has a wonderful forever home and a best bunny friend forever, but she’s also a wildly popular cat on Instagram. The purrfectly sweet kitten has a whopping 321k followers! And if you see some of her pics, you can probably understand why she’s such a hit:
Thanks to her human, Jackie, Roux is now celebrating her second birthday in style. Happy Birthday, Roux, and many happy returns of the day! We are totally head over heels for you. Watch Roux’s birthday video below and we bet you’ll fall for her, too.
